Crime Patrol is an excellent shooter! You may remember other American Laser Games like Mad Dog McCree, Who Shot Johnny Rock? and Space Pirates. Crime Patrol is the best yet! The live action looks cool and the sound effects and music underscore the suspense. Shoot gang members, armed robbers, ski-masked villains, drug dealers, mob bosses and car thieves. Start at Rookie level, then work your way up through Undercover, Detective, SWAT team and Delta Force. The situations get tougher as you go. Watch out for innocent victims - shooting them ends the game. It's like playing COPS Interactive!

The game is designed (music, fluidity of the action, scenery, etc...) to persuade you into being the hero of the day!

Nice, bright video; good B-movie soundtrack. Some truly cheesy acting; low on interaction. One of the best titles from American Laser Games, and a fun arcade romp. Don't expect a lot of strategy, though.
3DOFLUX (Oct, 1994)
Overall, Crime Patrol is a quality translation of the arcade original, and only further enhances the value of the 3DO.

Классику надо знать в лицо, поэтому порекомендовать зачищать улицы и трущобы современного города от толпы обнаглевших криминалов в этой новой стрелялке можно самой широкой аудитории. Даже сегодня видеоряд уж если и не сражает наповал, то хотя бы внушает уважение, потому что на экране разворачивается типичный голливудский боевик с перестрелками, погонями, взрывами и прочими необходимыми составляющими динамичного и зажигающего действа. В общем, одни, может быть, вспомнят свои восторженные вопли из девяностых, а другие просто получат отличную стрелялку, полноэкранный видеотир от первого лица, еще одного представителя жанра, который уже давно не радовал нас своими новинками. А жаль, хорошо хоть, есть, кому напомнить о его существовании...
ArcadeAll Game Guide (1998)
Produced by American Laser Games, makers of such titles as Mad Dog McCree and Space Pirates, Crime Patrol takes the familiar live action, first-person target shooting formula and ups the ante in terms of realism and interactive intensity.

If you like Lethal Enforcers or Mad Dog McCree, you'll be on the lookout for Crime Patrol. It's just a crime that nothing different was put into this game.

Hey, this game is hillarious.... I mean really, really funny. It's the cinemas in this game that make it fun to play, and keep you coming back for more. Personally I would have to say this is my favorite ALG game for the 3DO hands down. Accuracy isn't all that bad with the gun, and I actually was able to keep a reasonable progression through the game (unlike some of the other titles like this). Graphics were pretty good, the full-screen, full-motion video is decent and pretty clean. Jumps from segment to segment flow well, and the overall production, while cheesy, is good. I'd have to say that if you're going to get a gun game, this one would have to be the one to get.
DOSPC Player (Germany) (Dec, 1994)
Spielerisch wärmt American Laser von CD zu CD das selbe Süppchen auf; Simples Mausklick-Geballer; nicht übertrieben tiefsinnig oder komplex, aber durchaus kurzweilig. Crime Potrol sieht man an, daß die Firma mit wachsendem Erfolg immer größere Budgets in die Videodrehs investieren konnte. Raffinierte Kamerafahrten, spektakuläre Stunts, Autoverfolgungsjagden und abwechslungsreiche Drehorte - hier ist mehr los als in einem durchschnittlichen TV-Krimi. Inhaltlich ein Offenbarungseid, aber als simpler Zwischendurch-Spaß kann Crime Patrol gefallen. Unterm Strich gibt‘s wegen der besseren Videos ein Pünktchen Aufwertung gegenüber Mad Dog II.

לסיום, אי אפשר להגיד שהמשחק משתווה למשחק המכונה, אבל מי שממש מכור לסוג זה של משחקים, ורוצה להפסיל לשלשל אינסוף שקלים לכיסי בעל אולם מכונות המשחקים השכונתי, מוזמן לבדוק את המשחק בעצמו.
SEGA CDGamePro (US) (Apr, 1995)
As usual with these shooters, the inaccurate control leaves a lot to be desired. But even with a gun (sold separately), the game is too basic, following the standard pattern of "shoot the criminals, avoid the innocent bystanders". With nothing added to pad the mediocrity of yet another shooting title, it's a crime that his one made it through the line.
DOSPC Attack (Oct, 1995)
Graphics are acceptable once it's running correctly - there's no blood, but plenty of explosions and a truly gruesome scene where a robber gets electrocuted on a security fence (ha!). Sound effects are good enough, but the cut scenes and the accents soon grate. Altogether, not convincing.
3DOVideo Games (Mar, 1995)
So ähnlich muß wohl ein Lehrgang für Schießwütige auf der Police Academy aussehen. Man nehme ein Joypad, Maus oder besser eine 3DO-Game Gun und schieße auf Digi-Schießbudenfiguren auf einem interaktiven Bildschirm.
SEGA CDVideo Games (Feb, 1995)
Die Grafik ist mehr schlecht als recht, die Steuerung mit dem Joypad fürchterlich. Da muß schon ein Gamegun her, wenn man die roten Punkte, die auf dem Bildschirm die Einschußlöcher markieren, auch gut plazieren will. Diese Art von Spiel ist allein schon aus Qualitätsgründen fürs Mega Drive ungeeignet. Bis man die verschwommenen Schatten als Gegner erkennen kann, hat man schon Löcher im Kopf.
